You have not known what you are.
You have slumbered upon yourself all your life.
Your eyes have been as much as closed most of the time.
What you have done is already in mockeries.

The mockeries are not you.
Underneath them
And within them,
I see you lurk...

a tease from the 'prince'

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. the long wait is over and anyone who know the spectacled boy with a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead (playing with his wand. hehe!), is experiencing the same tingling sensation on the spine as i feel right now. i could imagine each and one of them celebrating, screaming (or stifling it and squishing something instead) their lungs out for a glimpse of the most magical movie experience of the year as it spread like an epidemic on the internet and television—the teaser trailer of harry potter and the half blood prince. (kapow!).

after ages and ages of visiting youtube.com, patiently waiting and looking for the official teaser of the latest of one of the most famous movie franchise in history (ever!), and getting fan-made crappy versions (sorry) of it instead, and visiting forums and various related sites…the official one had finally emerged…rousing in anticipation, muggles and wizard-kind alike…

feast your eyes with this official teaser trailer of the latest movie adaptation of j.k. rowling’s 6th installment; of the seven part series of the pivotal life of harry potter…



i had to watch it several times (i lost count of course). i dwelled on every second of it, squinted on every pixel, trying to catch every detail. i loved how they interpret the containers that hold the memories. they remind me of ampoules—they are made of glass used to contain emergency drugs (i love breaking ampoules. curious because breaking them open boosts my self-esteem in my hospital affiliations. weird. haha!). the young tom riddle was really creepy. his eyes did the trick. if i’m not mistaken, he’s the kid from the ‘omen’. anyway, it’s cool to see marvolo gaunt’s ring. i love how the visual artists interpret tom’s orphanage. really creepy. very fitting for a building to raise the dark lord. what’s really striking about the trailer was the ‘lake scene’ where dumbledore conjures a revolving fire, while standing on a crystal island (the crystals reminded me of superman’s fortress in the north pole. haha!) it’s like the iconic battle between gandalf (sir ian mckellen) and the balrog in the mines of moria. you had to have a background on the lord of the rings trilogy to understand what i’m blabbering about…hehe!

the trailer was so dark…i like it dark. i hope the movie would be darker. i want to see if david yates could surpass himself, considering that he also directed last year’s order of the phoenix (which is my favorite from the movie series, just under alfonso cuaron’s prisoner of azkaban. hehe!) the half-blood prince is my favorite of the book series. it showcases the most tragic ending in my opinion. i had an emotional connection with this one. cried. and i have no plans of telling you why in case you didn’t know that dumbledore died. (oops! hehe!) i just can’t wait to watch it on imax 3d! (wee!) harry potter fanatics out there: i hope to see you in mall of asia, alright? ciao!

cant wait na ma-complete na lahat ng harry potter movies... imagine sarap mag marathon!

creepy child nga!

spongebabe said...

i'm not sure if i want to watch. i think i already outgrew my HP fanaticism. the last HP movie i saw was Goblet of Fire. tsaka this is the book where Dumbledore died, di ba? sa book pa nga lang, mega bawl na ako. i don't think i can handle seeing that on the big screen. *sniffs*

Jake Tornado said...

POTAH, POTAH AT POTAH PA!!! Talaga, parating na? Shocks, big event ito sa mga Harry Potter addictos like us! Can't wait baby!

gandarynako said...

coolness! thanks for posting this! i too have long awaited the next installment in the HP series! kaka-excite! and you're right the kid who plays tom IS creepy. haven't seen the omen, but he looks familiar.

rheiboy17 said...

naku ang pagbabalik ni peklat potter ay lalabas na pala. di ba dito mamatay si lolo dumbledore? kung pwede lang ibahin nila just for the movie, kaso imposible ata yun, haaaay.

this is definitely a movie-to-watch-for. thanks for posting this.

the donG said...

ROneiluke said...

ROneiluke said...

Lawstude said...

pag harry potter na usapan eh naiiwan ako sa kangkungan. siguro pag natapos na lahat ang series na to tsaka ko papanoorin ng isang upuan. tulad ng ginawa ko sa LOTR. 2nd to the last na to di ba?

shurikenstuff said...

yeah well, it is a common fact that if u like the books, then the movies(which brutally disrespected the books, i mean, where's Peeves?)don't come appealing anymore...Potter fans are divided between books and moviescreen, and that's nasty sh**

Reyn said...

Haha shurikenstuff, that's normal. For "movie purposes"..

dazedblu* said...

Yay, malapit na pala ito :) droppin' by

kalansaycollector said...

yeeeesssssssss!!!!!! isa akong harry potter fan as in!!!!

well i love it dark too.

ika said...

HP addict din ako. but not so much of the movies. malupit pa rin stories.

sakin naman, I like the chamber of secrets the best. worst is goblet of fire. nasobrahan sa angst.

ROneiluke said...

to ika: wow..ang dami tlgang HP fanatics!! hehe!! ang gusto ko sa chamber, solid ang ending niya. masaya! hehe! when being true to the essense of harry potter iba pa rin tlga ang 'books'..talaga? worst ang 'goblet' for you? hmm...ewan ko gusto ko lahat! haha! thanks for posting your comment.

spongebabe said...

yung nagplay ata na younger tom riddle (adolescent ata) is pamangkin ni ralph fiennes, who is the grown-up tom riddle a.k.a. voldemort. wala lang. trivia lang. hehe.

KRIS JASPER VAN DYKE said...

Good. I hope the movie will be shown soon.

ROneiluke said...

ArmCay said...

Grabeh talaga epekto at impluwenxa ng HP...tsk3...I'm an avid fan too and damn, how I love Voldemort...especially yung young Tom. He really took the character to the grandest level...but my best bud is really the most incredible HP fanatic I've ever known...Imagine...maaga ngpunta sa ofis para maka streaming ng trailer ng HP nung very 1st day etu pinalabas...at d ako nakaligtaz sa magdamagang pagkukwento nya...The excitement was really all over him..although I was excited too, grabeh...halos mabingi na ko sa kakabalik kwento nya ng HP and everything about it..all the trivia..all the stuffs he was able to learn about HP...tsk3..He even initiated the "showing of trailer" to me.. from typing the url to where first nakita yung trailer hanggang sa pag load ng player...waaaaaaa...grabeh talaga...and im sure this installation is so great even though it's a bit dark and serious.. But then acccording sa frend ko..madami din daw humor palabas sa movie..we'll see.. hahaha... :D

Thanks for dropping by to my blog...you've got a cool blog here...keep it up.. ;)

(by the way, I'll put your link to my not-so-good blog..it'll be fine if you dont return the favor...hehe)

Aethen said...

I can't wait for the screening of this series. But so far movie three is still the best. I like the book7, i heard that they will be having two parts for the filming of the movie of book7. :)

RONeiluke, RN said...

to aethen: ako din...so far book three is the best movie adaptation of the book...it's good to know there's still 3 more movies to go! weeeee!!!
